Meranz Alm - mountain hiking nature guide

This hike leads from the Venetbahn mountain station via the Lärchensteig trail to the Meranz Alm. After a refreshment stop with fresh alpine produce, the route continues via the Bettlersteig to the Zammer Alm and from there to the Venetbahn mid-station.

From the mountain station of the Venetbahn cable car at 2,212 metres, probably the most famous panoramic mountain in West Tyrol, the hiking trail leads briefly along the Tobis adventure trail, past one of the play stations, onto the Lärchensteig trail. This leads through larch forests, always following the signposts, to the Meranzalm. A hearty "Tiroler Marend" or a glass of milk or buttermilk is a must here. After a rest and refreshment, continue via the Bettlersteig and the reservoir to the Zammer Alm. Here you can fortify yourself on the terrace with a marvellous view of the Lechtal Alps. From the Zammer Alm, it's a 20-minute walk to the middle station of the Venetbahn cable car, which takes you back down to the valley in comfort.

This tour is also offered as a guided tour in summer and is free for all guests with a TirolWest Card! The Venetbahn ticket is not included, except with the TirolWest Card Premium!
